Quality Dog Food

The dog food industry is changing in a very dramatic way, and I believe that the changes are coming for the better. I was hesitant about the dog food brands that were available, but I have become more in tune with this because my veterinarian has guided me in the ways of healthy dog foods. She has made me see the light and really question the type of dog foods that I am buying for my pets. For me, the healthy dog foods that are available today are representing better selection of foods that are on the market. I have seen healthy dog food grow because there is so much demand. Pet owners are becoming more educated, and they simply expect more because companies like FreshPet, Blue Buffalo and Beneful are providing better foods. Beneful brings a variety of dog food to the table, and I love what this organization has done. There are baked treats that are healthy. There are also vegetable blend meals. I believe that there are even a few meals that have fruit thrown into the mix. This is amazing, and my dogs have been devouring these meals and begging for more. I know that Beneful has been a strong brand over the years, but this high quality food that the company offers makes this an even better brand. The Beneful Healthy Radiance is a good choice for pet owners that have pets that may be lagging and lounging around. Sometimes pets are much like humans in a sense. They may need that burst of energy, and this Beneful brand provides that. I have been amazed by all the things that these dog food companies are bringing forth. There are duck and chicken meat choices. There are refrigerated meals. There are so many brands of healthy dog food that are emerging. I am excited that my dogs have so much to choose from. I will keep Beneful as one of the staples, but I am not afraid to explore. I like to give my dogs choices and let them explore all the quality dog food choices.

Human Rights Foundation Looking to Improve the Lives of Others

Around the world there are people who are not given the same quality of life as what they might receive in other regions. Often times, this is due to the government in the country. Angola is such a nation that has put down most of the residents in the nation due to the large amount of oil and diamonds discovered inside of the country. The governing family inside of the nation has been labeled a dictatorship and often does anything necessary in order to bring in more financial gain for the family, typically at the expense of the citizens. The family has had opposing government officials, reporters, writers and citizens killed when they voice their opinions about the government. Despite this, Nicki Minaj performed for the family and high ranking government officials on Christmas, despite the pleading of Human Rights Foundation and the founder, Thor Halvorseen.

Thor created The Human Rights Foundation back in the spring of 2005 in order to help oppose apartheid in South Africa. He has also worked with multiple other organizations that support human rights, such as On Now Feet: The Centipede Children and the Foundation of Individual Rights and Education. He currently does everything he can in order to help citizens around the world receive appropriate treatment. It is why he does everything in his power to not support dictators who rise to power at the expense of almost every single citizen within the nation.

The ruling family in Angola became wealthy off of the backs of its citizens. The money the nation makes is blood money, due to the labor of diamonds and oil sold to other nations and businesses that do not have a problem with this. The Human Rights Foundation, as well as Thor Halvorseen, try to educate companies and individuals that supporting the dictator’s family and what it does simply supports the way the country treats its citizens. It is why the organization reached out to Nicki Minaj and asked her to cancel the private concert (once she received millions of dollars to do).

Nicki did not cancel her show and instead went to perform for the dictator, his family and close government officials. She decided to accept the blood money for her performance, despite all of the information Thor Halvorseen offered her. It is yet to be determined what sort of consequences it might have on her career or the people of Angola.

Koch’s Americans for Prosperity Foundation Takes Aim at Poverty

Multibillionaire and philanthropist Charles Koch, along with his Americans for Prosperity Foundation, has been has been launching programs in low-income areas to encourage people, in his words, “ to improve their lives and make the world a better place.”

The outreach program, Bridge to Well-being, has been operating in states including Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia. Programs have included:

• Dinners at a Miami church for African-Americans during which a chef lectured on “dinners on a dime,” and another spoke on “learning about freedom.”
• Events at churches and community centers with programs on budgets, finance, health and wellness, nutrition, “constitutional and personal rights.”
• The benefits of couponing and affordable eating
• Educating parents on evaluating schools
• The LIBRE Initiative, aimed at Hispanics, has given away toys and turkeys, but also provides language training for drivers’ licenses, GED exams and tax preparation.
• An initiative focused on veterans with similar well-being programs
• Programs for the homeless, mentally ill and developmentally disabled
• An outreach program for those who are “disengaged” from the mainstream, called “Stand Together for America.”
• Emergency responses to disasters, such as donating 100,000 gallons of bottled water to people downstream from a chemical spill in West Virginia.

Charles Koch has called the network “the most effective movement in history for helping people improve their lives and making the world a better place.” He believes that government regulations and welfare have held poor people back from success.

According to Jennifer Stefano, Koch Network official, the program wants to “turn your passion into profit by helping other people be successful, to not just tell them about the economy…but to show them that we want them to economically thrive, and how to do it.”

The budget for this program and all other donations for the coming year, including the 2016 election, is $889 million. The sum is distributed among many groups and many causes, including politics in the upcoming presidential race.

Charles Koch is co-owner, chairman of the Board, and CEO of Koch Industries. His brother, David, is Executive Vice President. They inherited the business from their father, Fred C. Koch. The brothers each own 42% of the conglomerate, and David’s net worth is said to be $44.3 billion as of December, 2015. Koch Industries, which originally consisted of oil refineries and chemicals, has branched out to include fertilizers, pollution control equipment, minerals and more.

They heavily donate to the Republican Party and its candidates, and co-founded the Cato Institute, a conservative think tank located in Washington, DC.
